The word Sakura means cherry tree in Japanese. The cherry tree has been long loved by Japanese people. The Kanetsune Sakura knife handle is made from Oak and wrapped with beautiful Cherry tree skin with a black metal hilt. The blade is made from 15 layers of Japanese Blue Steel Damascus. In spring, the Sakura come out in full bloom after a very cold winter. It means this knife is very beautiful and strong just like the Sakura. If you take this knife, you can feel Japanese spirit. The knife also includes a Japanese traditional-style wooden scabbard sheath with leather belt loop. Blue Steel is called Aogami in Japan and is made by adding chromium and tungsten to white steel, making it more durable with greater edge retention. These knives make a great collectible piece or an everyday work knife.
